PLATTSBURGH — Motions were heard this week in Clinton County Court in a murder case involving the death of a Beekmantown woman.

Gustavo Segundo-Clark, 25, allegedly killed his grandmother Ginger Clark last November at her home and stole her car and credit card, eventually being apprehended by State Police near Schenectady.

He was living with her at the time of her death. Segundo-Clark allegedly stabbed her with a kitchen knife.

PSYCHIATRIC EVIDENCE

On Thursday, Judge William Favreau heard from both District Attorney Andrew Wylie and Segundo-Clark’s court-appointed attorney, Joseph Mucia, following the defense’s filing of a notice of intent to proffer psychiatric evidence.

Wylie asked that all mental-health and treatment records be released to the District Attorney’s Office so a psychiatric expert could analyze them.

Mucia asked for further time for his office to hire a psychiatric expert of its own on behalf of his client.

Wylie also mentioned that once New York State Police finish processing the evidence, the 2010 Subaru Forrester that belonged to Clark should be returned to her family.

ADJOURNMENT

Favreau adjourned the case until 11 a.m. Thursday, March 28, to digest the motions brought up by the attorneys, by which point he intends to make his decisions.

An autopsy performed last November at Albany Medical Center found that Clark had died from “hemorrhage due to the perforation of the left jugular vein and the left carotid artery caused by multiple incised wounds to the neck.” 

Segundo-Clark was in court Thursday but did not speak during the brief session.

He was returned to Clinton County Jail to stay until his next court date.
